Alex Scott has re-signed with the Boston Breakers. The attack-minded right back spent the first two seasons of WPS with the Breakers, tallying one goal and three assists in 38 games thus far.
With Scott locked up for 2011, the Breakers will return their entire defensive core but also add the key addition of United States Women’s National team center back and co-captain Rachel Buehler. Barring any surprises to the line-up, Scott and Stephanie Cox can attack up the flanks out of the back, while Buehler and Amy LePeilbet, both U.S. internationals, will anchor the center of the back line.
In other news, the Western New York Flash will indeed play all nine home games at Marina Auto Stadium in Rochester. It has been mentioned on several occasions that all signs were pointing to the team only playing in Rochester, but that is now official after the team’s meetings with Niagara University. Expanding Niagara’s soccer stadium is not something that made economic sense for 2011, but owner Joe Sahlen’s heart still lies in the Buffalo area and he said he wants the team to play in Buffalo or Niagara in the future.
